Gewirthian Perspectives on Human Rights Hardback

Edited by Per (Linnaeus University, Sweden) Bauhn

Part of the Routledge Studies in American Philosophy series


Gewirth's theory of human rights has made a major contribution to philosophy.

In this edited collection, contributors from a broad range of disciplines discuss the theoretical and practical application of Gewirthian theory to current world issues.

Case studies highlight mental health, the LGBT community, intellectual disabilities, global economic inequality, and market instability to provide a truly interdisciplinary study.

This important contribution to human rights scholarship provides a platform for further discussion of Gewirthian theory.

It will be of interest to those researching moral, legal, and political philosophy, as well as policy makers, social workers, and medical staff.
